PacBio Sequel IIe installed at Edinburgh Genomics

Edinburgh Genomics (EdGe) now has its PacBio Sequel IIe installed and ready to deliver hugh quantities of long, highly accurate HiFi reads . Contact the team to see how this exciting new technology can help with your science! Funded by the BBSRC, this sequencer complements EdGe's other high throughput sequencers.

Edinburgh Genomics and Illumina Virtual Event

Edinburgh Genomics (EdGe) and Illumina invite you to a joint virtual event to on Tuesday 3rd of November from 10 am.

The morning sessions will update you on what is new with Edinburgh Genomics and Illumina addition to a refresher session on the capabilities of the MiSeq and NovaSeq sequencers (see agenda below).

We will also have two short scientific presentations from Morad Ansari, PhD, Clinical Scientist (Western General Hospital) and Nina-Lydia Kazakou, PhD Student (Centre for Regenerative Medicine).

EdGe open again

Illumina and long-read sequencing projects We are now able to receive samples for Illumina and long-read NGS projects. If you have an active project or a newly activated one, we will be in contact with you regarding sample delivery. Or get in touch with us at egs-projects@ed.ac.uk . Sanger Sequencing Service We expect our Sanger sequencing service to begin receiving samples from next week (wc...

Service Update: COVID-19

SERVICE UPDATE: In accordance with Government guidance, all our laboratory based services are now closed. However, all Bioinformatics activities are fully operational, and you can still contact us by email if you need advice on projects or quotes for future work.

Gene study boosts bid to keep British bees safe from disease

Efforts to protect the UK's native honey bees could be helped by research that maps their entire genetic make-up. Experts also analysed the genetic profile of bacteria and other organisms that live inside bees, to shed new light on emerging diseases that threaten bee colonies. Researchers say their findings could help to safeguard native bee populations from the effects of infectious diseases...
